Carry Out Spaghetti Dinner: October 3, 2021
Have you missed our Festa Picnic the last two summers? The food, the fellowship, the fun.... We've missed it, too!  The Society will host a carry-out spaghetti dinner on Sunday, October 3, 2021 from 1-5pm. The dinner will be at the Knights of Columbus (7403 N Radnor Rd, Peoria). Meals are $10 each, you can purchase a family meal that serves four people for $35. Each meal consists of spaghetti, bread and salad. To help us plan, since this is new for us, we are asking people to place orders in advance. To place an order, click here for our online form. If you have questions, email italianamericansocietypeoria@gmail.com or contact Rhonda Parker (309-645-5285) or Sara Schlueter (309-397-3587). Thank you and see you on October 3!

Annual Festa Picnic - August 

Socials
Several times a year Society members will get together outside of our meetings to enjoy each other's company, converse and relax.

Italian Heritage Day - October 
Each year,  the members of the Italian-American Society gather together to celebrate our heritage as Italians. A member of the Society or Peoria community will often speak about the history of Italians globally or in the United States. 

Annual Christmas/Holiday Dinner - December 
Each December at our monthly meeting members of the Society take time to reflect on the past year and celebrate family and friendship at our annual Christmas/Holiday Dinner. In addition to the buffet meal, members are encouraged to prepare and bring Italian desserts. At this event, the Society members collect items for a charity in the area. There may also be special appearances by Santa and La Befana
